Physiotherapy modalities and electrotherapy are commonly used in the treatment of many patients experiencing back, neck, arthritis and other musculoskeletal problems. In order to properly address our patients' ailments, Blacklick Family Chiropractic utilizes the latest chiropractic techniques and technology to determine the most effective therapeutic procedures for your unique condition.
Below are some of the most frequently prescribed electrotherapy and physiotherapy modalities:
Muscle stimulation therapy administers "interferrential" electrical pulses to specific areas of the body in order to stimulate motor nerves to cause muscle contractions, pain relief and/or to reduce inflammation. Electrical muscle stimulation is often used to prevent or reduce muscle atrophy.
Ultrasound therapy uses high energy sound waves to reduce muscles and joint pain. When these high energy sound waves are released from the head of an ultrasound machine and applied to soft tissues and joints, they facilitate increased blood flow and decreased swelling, pain, stiffness and spasms.
Depending upon the severity of your condition, ice can reduce pain or the inflammation of injured muscles and nerves. Cold therapy is often the best immediate treatment for recent injuries. It helps reduce swelling and control pain immediately.
